|Aortic valve evaluation by 128-DSCT prior to TAVI: Optimal time interval for AVA sizing in comparison with echocardiography|
Aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic value of 128-DSCT for sizing of the aortic valve area (AVA). Therefore cardiac CT scans of patients with severe AS that were scheduled for TAVI were analyzed retrospectively, measuring AVA from different cardiac phases and comparing them to TTE results. Specifically, the best phases for sizing and image quality in different phases were analyzed.
